Prosecutors Withdraw Charges Against Beanie Sigel
Prosecutors in Philadelphia have withdrawn car theft charges against Beanie Sigel after he resolved a dispute over a rented Nissan Altima. Sigel had rented the vehicle from Payless Car Rental in South Philly in July and failed to return the car on when it was due back on August 13. When the vehicle was never returned, Payless reported it as stolen but continued to charge the rapper’s credit card. The vehicle was eventually returned on October 5, but $5,000 in late fees had accumulated. According to the Associated Press, prosecutors withdrew the charges during a preliminary hearing on Thursday. “This essentially was a misunderstanding between the two parties,” said Beanie’s attorney Fortunato Perri, who noted that all outstanding fees have been paid.
